Todd - Growing Up In Appalachia


Published 1970


A poignant film of poverty and morality. In this exceptional sociodrama, a hungry boy finds someone's food stamps and makes a decision. The schoolhouse scene is sobering, washing is done in a basin to show that the sink doesn't work, a teacher makes lunch for kids from government-issue canned food, cooked on a gas stove located in the classroom.
